I am an economic theorist. My current research studies situations in which conflicts of interest interfere with efficient exchange of information. I focus on two specific topics: How does the emergence of new media affect communication. How to effectively organize R&D given the informational externality of knowledge. I am also interested in behavioral economics and applied microeconomics, especially research questions underpinned by economic theories.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the ASSA 2020 meeting in San Diego.
